Matt Sayles is a minor character, and is Kelly Goodweather's new partner. He serves as a antagonist in Season 1.


He is an operations manager for Sears. Not much else is currently known about Matt Sayles. After a dispute with Kelly concerning Matt's call to the FBI and Ephraim's subsequent arrest. He went to work only to become infected when he unwittingly confronted two strigoi who bit his coworker. He tried to feed on Zack, but he did so so clumsily that Ephraim was able to overpower him and behead him with a shovel. Matt's face was wounded, which Ephraim took as a sign that he fought with Kelly. Since she was nowhere to be found, they assume Kelly is still alive.

In a flashback we see that Kelly returned home only to get attacked by an infected Matt. Indeed she slashed him in the face, but in the process a parasitic worm landed on Kelly's face which entered her body through a tear duct.
